U19 National Cricket Selection disappointed in Suriname, remain in Division 2

Just an update on the U19 Tournament which was scheduled to be held from July 31 to August 5 in Suriname, but was called off due to rain.

The ICC Americas Under-19 Division 2 Championship, which was cancelled due to rain, will not be re-held due to financial reasons. ICC Americas Officials will recommend that Argentina, Bahamas and Cayman Island move back up to Division 1, since they had been there before. They were dropped down to Division 2 because of the level of cricket they were playing; in other words, they were not playing Division 1 cricket.

Presently, the following teams are in Division 2 – Argentina, Bahamas, Belize, Cayman Islands and Suriname. But if the head office approves the recommendation made, then only Belize and Suriname will be left in Division 2.

These tournaments are held just about every two years, and to know that we have been taken out of the U19 World Cup run for 2014 was a big blow, as the winner from this (Division 2) tournament would have gone up to Division 1; and if we had won that, we would have earned the right to represent the Americas at the 2014 U19 Cricket World Cup.
